Free Radicals are atoms in our body that are chemically unstable having an unpaired electron making them highly reactive. Typically they are unstable oxygen molecules that steal an electron from a nearby stable molecule.

This process of stealing is called “Oxidation”.

Normally, the body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur. Of particular importance is that free radical damage accumulates with age.

What if you could increase the efficiency of some of our body’s most important native antioxidants inside living cells – such as glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) — more than 500%?

Would you want to know how?

We live and die at the cellular level. Our bodies are programmed for health; programmed to protect, repair, and replace our cells. But our bodies' ability to do that diminishes over time. We have a word for that: Aging.

The key to protecting, repairing, and replacing cells is a specialized set of molecules: Redox Signaling molecules. Your own body makes them, every minute of every day. But as we get older, our bodies get less efficient at the process. In fact, while very young children operate at nearly 100% efficiency in what scientists call “the healing response,” a 70 year-old is operating at only 10% efficiency.

That’s aging, right there. Reduction in efficiency in the healing response.

The answer? The world’s only Redox Signaling supplement - want to learn more? Send me a message - this is truly a breakthrough in science!

(This is the second of two articles reporting on the 2017 Annie Appleseed cancer conference in West Palm Beach, Florida)

Dr. Michael Schachter, M.D., of New York, was the keynote speaker at this year’s Annie Appleseed cancer conference. He’s one of America’s most outstanding cancer doctors.

Dr. Schachter expressed concern that integrative cancer doctors – those who combine alternatives with mainstream medicine – too often accept chemo and radiation as a “given” and use alternative treatments only to supplement the conventional treatments.

Dr. Schachter believes it makes more sense to use non-toxic methods first and only use conventional treatments if necessary as a last resort.

He remarked, “Might patients do even better by not doing the conventional therapy at all in some cases? That’s the question that’s not being asked! Rarely is it asked whether adding conventional treatment might interfere with the alternative treatment.”

Continued below. . .

German tycoon quits business
opens new kind of cancer center,
and stuns doctors with “impossible” cures…

As a last resort, 67 so-called “terminally ill” stage four cancer patients went to the tycoon’s new cancer center: over half of them whipped their cancer!

A baffled radiologist told the tycoon, “I don’t understand why the PET scans of your cancer patients look different.”

Perplexed doctors are scratching their heads.

How did this retired German businessman cure many of the “terminal” stage four cancer patients they’d sent home to die?

Click here to find out the full story on the tycoon’s cancer center, and how you can get the same treatment for yourself.

Avoid excessive blasts of radiation!

Dr. Schachter cautioned against PET and CT scans. He said a CT scan blasts the patient with 100 times the radiation of a single chest X-ray. Even worse is a PET scan, which nukes the patient with 500 times the radiation of a chest X-ray! Yet cancer doctors routinely order these tests, even though it’s a well-established fact that radiation is one of the causes of cancer.

What’s more, a tumor isn’t as dangerous to the patient as the cancer stem cells, which only occupy one percent of the tumor. It’s the cancer stem cells that metastasize. Dr. Schachter recommended the two plant extracts that another speaker, Sylvie Beljanski, had featured in her talk: Pao pereira, a tree native to the Amazon rain forest, and Rauwolfia vomitoria, an African plant now grown in other parts of the world. More on these later in this article.

While the cancer treatment industry claims to be making progress, Dr. Schachter pointed out that cancer death rates haven’t changed since the 1950s. He criticized conventional treatments for aiming to kill cancer cells with little concern for the bad effects on normal cells.

Indeed, what good does it do to poison the cancer if the treatment also poisons the patient? It’s common for cancer patients to die from the conventional treatments rather than from the cancer itself.

Some cancer patients are so desperate they leap at the chance to participate in a clinical trial. But Dr. Schachter frowns on clinical trials because no patient can be accepted into a clinical trial without first undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, which compromise or destroy the immune system.

In Dr. Schachter’s opinion, the clinicians are more interested in the trial than in the patient. Another disadvantage of trials is that the patients have only a 50-50 chance of getting the drug that’s being tested: half of the patients receive a placebo (a blank pill, also known as a “sugar pill”). Dr. Schachter rarely sees patients benefit from clinical trials.

Magnetic therapy: “a potential game changer”

Dr. Schachter mentioned that he’s impressed with the effect of Bemer therapy on cancer patients. The Bemer device, which is used in nearly all of the alternative cancer clinics in Germany that I’ve visited, is a mat that gives the patient optimal PEMF (pulsed electro-magnetic frequencies).

Dr. Schachter said, “The Bemer is a potential game changer. It causes an increase of about 30 percent in micro-circulation all over the body. This increases oxygen and helps get rid of the waste. Bemer therapy takes only eight minutes, twice a day. It’s easy. You lie on this mat. You feel relaxation or a slight warmth.”

One of Germany’s top doctors, Frank Daudert, M.D., told me the Bemer also boosts the immune system and increases natural killer cells by 20 to 25 percent. Many cancer patients buy a Bemer for home use. (For info about the Bemer, contact Anne Bernard, naturopath: anne@vieharmony.com.)

Has cancer research accomplished anything?

President Richard Nixon famously declared war on cancer in 1971. Since that time, the government has spent 1.6 billion dollars on cancer research in quest of a cure. What are the results of this research?

Dr. Schachter drew the audience’s attention to an article, “Cancer Undefeated,” by a distinguished physician, John C. Bailar, M.D. In that article, which appeared in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine (May 29, 1997, 336:1569-1574), Dr. Bailar expressed deep skepticism that “marvelous new treatments for cancer are just waiting to be discovered.”

He pointed out the obvious failure of cancer researchers. In response, the cancer research industry attacked Dr. Bailar mercilessly.

Even today, 20 years later, the cancer research industry appears to be an abysmal failure.

In contrast to this failure, Dr. Schachter has had considerable success using natural treatments. Because anti-inflammatories inhibit cancer stem cell growth, he recommends such substances as curcumin, black cumin seeds, cruciferous vegetables, vitamin D, boswellia, and aloe vera extract. In addition, he tests each cancer patient for iodine — and typically finds a deficiency.

Dr. Schachter has found in his practice that the patient’s body has the ability to heal itself, given the right conditions. He said cancer patients should avoid or reduce toxic substances and toxic energies and supply what the body needs: oxygen, water, food, nutrition, and sunlight.

The orthodontist who became a cancer guru

Dr. Linda Isaacs, M.D., a colleague of the late legendary Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D., told the Annie Appleseed audience the story of an orthodontist, Dr. William Donald Kelley (1925-2005).

Dr. Kelley, one of the most famous figures in alternative cancer treatment, cured his own “incurable” pancreatic cancer. He had become little more than skin and bones, except for the gigantic tumor sticking out of his abdomen. But he had young children and strong reasons to live, so he tried something radical: he went raw vegetarian.

Although this eating plan stabilized his disease, he still experienced major digestive problems. A pharmacist advised him to take pancreatic enzymes, and this remedy was a breakthrough in his course of treatment. His tumor, which had been rock hard, became soft and squishy as it shrank and disintegrated.

Dr. Isaacs pointed out that, for more than a century, patients have employed the pancreatic enzyme cure for cancer. In 1911, Dr. James Beard, who has been called the most boring person who ever lived, wrote the book The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and its Scientific Basis.

Around the same time, a more exciting scientist, Madame Marie Curie, dazzled the world with a cancer treatment that had more sizzle: radiation! The rest, as they say, is history. It’s too bad the medical world ignored Dr. Beard and embraced radiation as a standard cancer treatment. Ironically, Madame Curie died of radiation poisoning.

The orthodontist’s cancer cure

Following Dr. Kelley’s pancreatic enzyme cure, patients started to come to him not to have their teeth straightened out but to have their cancer straightened out. He wrote a self-help book entitled One Answer to Cancer, which caused consternation in the medical community.

One of the people who sought help from Dr. Kelley for his “incurable” cancer was movie star Steve McQueen, who had gone through chemo and radiation without success. McQueen had one of the nastiest cancers, mesothelioma, but was actually reversing it with natural medicine and might well have survived. He died on the operating table during an elective procedure.

Around 1983, Dr. Kelley met Dr. Gonzalez, who embraced his methods and achieved extraordinary success for patients suffering from tough, deadly cancers.

In 1993 Dr. Gonzalez presented 25 cases of enzyme-based cancer therapy to the National Cancer Institute and insisted that they consider his powerful, incontrovertible evidence. The one-year survival rate for Dr. Gonzalez’s terminal patients was 81 percent compared to 25 percent for patients who underwent conventional treatment. The two-year survival rate was 45 percent for Dr. Gonzalez’s enzyme therapy patients compared to 10 percent for patients in conventional treatment.

The cancer establishment pulled out all the stops to discredit Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gonzalez, but these two doctors produced impressive evidence that enzyme therapy beats conventional cancer treatment hands down.

Dr. Isaacs finished her talk by telling stories of remarkable cancer recoveries.

  • In December of 2000 a lady’s PET scan showed a pancreatic mass, which a biopsy later found to be a deadly cancer. She refused surgery and was declined for a clinical trial because she was eligible for surgery. She started the enzyme protocol in April of 2001 and took no chemo or radiation. As of December, 2016 she was alive and well.
  • In August of 2008 a woman had a football-sized mass in her back and two large tumors in her thorax. She was treated with aggressive chemo, without success. Doctors told her she was terminal. In February of 2009 she began enzyme therapy with Dr. Gonzalez. By the following March she was clear, and she’s still alive and well.
  • In October of 1995 a man with non-Hodgkin lymphoma refused all conventional treatment and started the enzyme protocol instead. A CT scan in May of 2001 showed complete regression. As of September, 2016 he was alive and well at the age of 60 and was building a retaining wall in his backyard.

One wonders how the cancer treatment industry can continue to ignore the powerful evidence that natural medicine beats chemo and radiation hands down.

Cancer survivors tell their personal stories

One of the most popular features of the Annie Appleseed conference is the Patient Panel, in which cancer patients describe their own experiences. One of the speakers this year was Annie Brandt, the author of The Healing Platform: Build Your Own Cure! She’s a 15-year survivor of end-stage metastatic breast cancer, and her story is amazing.

In 1992 Annie Brandt was a computer executive working 80 hours a week. She burned herself out and was diagnosed with immune dysfunction syndrome. Her response? “OK, where’s my pill?” She had assumed the doctor would write a prescription for a medication that would solve the problem.

But she found that her co-pay of $600 a month in pills was a waste. The pills weren’t working. She was in bed 21 hours a day, when she realized that the doctors couldn’t fix her but that she might be able to do something to fix herself.

Applying the principles of mind-body medicine gave her significant improvement, but one day she fell down vomiting and dizzy. She was diagnosed with M.S. and I.B.S. Doctors told her she would be in a wheelchair within six months and dead in a couple of years.

Annie was planning suicide when she heard a voice telling her, “Don’t worry. I’m not going to let anything bad happen to you.” She knew it was no human voice but could only have been the voice of God.

A double mastectomy? Not so fast!

She continued to struggle, and in 2001 she fell victim to another health setback — breast cancer. The doctor told her, “We’ve booked you for a double mastectomy on Tuesday, after which you’ll have chemo and radiation. Have a good weekend!”

She threw a gigantic pity party, as she described it, and was once again at the point of despair. Again, she heard the voice, “Don’t worry. I’m not going to let anything bad happen to you.”

That voice gave her the courage to get busy with research. When she found that chemo weakens the immune system, distorts the DNA of healthy cells, and promotes metastasis, she thought to herself, “Why would I want to do that?! If I’m going to die, I want to go with as much dignity and quality and grace as possible, and I want to go with the ‘girls.'”

She promptly cancelled the double mastectomy, even though the doctors tried to scare her by telling her she only had “three to six months to live.”

Annie beat her cancer by changing her attitude, getting rid of her “stinkin’ thinkin’,” praying, managing stress, and eating healthy food. She has found that there’s not just one anti-cancer eating plan but several, and she likes to “switch things around so that cancer doesn’t see me coming.”

“Let’s cut out your colon”

The other panelist was Chris Pedersen, who was referred for genetic testing in September of 2008 because a lot of polyps were found during her colonoscopy. A doctor told her, “You have a defective gene, which will give you a 99 percent chance of getting colon cancer, so let’s cut out your colon.” She thought, “What? Say that again. No. That’s barbaric!”

She had more colonoscopies, which found 15 more polyps; all of them were virulent. Her husband brought home some thick books, one of which was about nature’s cancer-fighting cures. She devoured the book and radically changed her lifestyle, especially her eating plan. She disengaged from sugar, to which she’d become addicted, and upped her intake of vegetables.

One year after starting her nutritional program she had a clean colonoscopy! Following this remarkable result, the doctor took her aside and said, “You know, you wouldn’t have to be going through this if you had your colon removed.” She looked at him as if he had two heads and thought to herself, “WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU!!! DON’T YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I DID?” Apparently, he had no interest in how she’d achieved her health turnaround.

Chris is convinced that you can heal the body by nourishing it. She mentioned some of the nutritional supplements she found to be effective: laetrile, digestive enzymes, lysine, turmeric in a capsule, vitamin C, Vitæ Elixxir herbal extract, and beta glucan.

Medicinal mushrooms are rich
in immune-boosting beta glucan

Dr. Mark Kaylor, Ph.D., spoke about the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms. One fact about these mushrooms is that they contain immune-boosting beta glucan. In fact, Dr. Kaylor gave everyone in the audience a bottle of meshima mushroom extract because of its powerful immune-boosting and anti-tumor action.

This mushroom extract activates the immune system’s macrophages, which are like “PacMan,” gobbling up the bad things the body needs to get rid of. The mushroom also suppresses angiogenesis, the formation of a blood supply to the tumor. Without a blood supply, the tumor starves to death and disintegrates.

Another powerful anti-cancer mushroom is the maitake, which is not only edible but also delicious. Maitake contains a unique beta glucan that’s especially beneficial for breast cancer patients. For patients who choose to undergo chemo, maitake helps lessen the side effects. It also lowers blood sugar and helps improve insulin sensitivity.

Most cancer patients are overstressed, which weakens the immune system. Dr. Kaylor called the reishi mushroom “a champion at lowering stress.” Reishi boasts many health benefits. It helps improve sleep quality, strengthens the internal organs, improves memory, lowers blood pressure, and balances the nervous system. It’s also anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, and anti-tumor.

Dr. Kaylor asserted that reishi is also “safe for kids. There’s no need for ADHD drugs.” He called it “the tonic for the 21st century” and believes just about everyone should take it.

Cordyceps is another mushroom Dr. Kaylor strongly believes in. Because of its circulatory benefits, he declared, “Everybody over 50 should be on it.”

For those who are interested in taking high quality medicinal mushroom extracts, some of the top brands are Mushroom Wisdom, Fungi Perfecti, and Mushroom Science.

Conventional doctors ignore cancer stem cells!

Sylvie Beljanski, the daughter of the late French-Serbian molecular biologist Mirko Beljanski, gave a talk about plant extracts that kill stem cells. Her late father worked for 40 years at the Pasteur Institute in Paris researching natural cancer remedies. He discovered two plants in particular that kill cancer with remarkable effectiveness.

These plants — Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria — even kill cancer stem cells, the culprit in cancer metastasis. Cancer stem cells hide from scans: only one percent of cancer cells are cancer stem cells.

Conventional cancer doctors ignore the stem cells, focus on the other cells (the tumor mass), and give their patients a false sense of security when, after surgery and chemo, they declare, “We got it all.” No, they didn’t “get it all.”

Chemotherapy is generally ineffective against cancer stem cells. This is the main reason why cancer so often returns after patients appear to be cancer free. And that’s why Mirko Beljanski’s ground-breaking discoveries are so important. Today, Dr. Beljanski’s daughter Sylvie is the Vice President of the Beljanski Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting his discoveries.

An eating plan for gut health

One of Mexico’s finest cancer doctors, Dr. Rodrigo Rodriguez of Tijuana, gave a talk on how to improve your gut health through a good eating plan. He pointed out that there are an astounding 300 billion cells in the intestinal flora (friendly digestive microbes) and that these cells perform “a ton of functions that are fundamental to our life.” When gut health is out of balance, people become inflamed, sick, weak, and tired.

Dr. Rodriguez suggested that people eat one more vegetable a day and devote one meal — lunch — to intestinal health. For lunch, he recommended a rich salad with such ingredients as legumes, radishes, and sweet potatoes.

Incidentally, Dr. Rodriguez’s hospital, International BioCare, is one of the finest cancer hospitals in the world. It’s quite popular with the Amish, who prefer natural medicine to high tech conventional treatments.

I want to take a moment to address this because it's a super common misconception that you can talk yourself into a different reality without engaging your emotional state.
 
Affirmations, visualizations, journal prompts, Kylego etc are tools, designed to get you to feel the emotions you would feel if your goal was already achieved.
Simply saying the affirmation or picturing the goal isn't going to cause a manifestation if you're not prepared to change how you're thinking and feeling. 
What we know from quantum physics is that atoms respond to our vibration, and our vibration comes down to our emotional state.
 
Newtonian (matrix level) is 'cause and effect', 
Quantum (the building blocks of reality) is 'effect triggers cause', meaning that you need to create the effect of your goal having been achieved (e.g. feeling proud, successful, secure, important, safe, calm, excited etc) in order to issue the correct blue-print. 
 
Someone who is excited will create a world full of things to excite them, because the atoms build a reality that supports and reinforces who you ARE, not what you want.
Someone who is constantly frustrated will generate a world full of things that frustrate them.
 
In addition, whatever you focus on, your brain assumes is important and relevant, and prioritizes it. So if you're focussed on problems, your brain deliberately seeks them out and prioritizes them for extra attention. Then, as you pour more fuel into them rather than elevating past them, they get bigger. And the cycle continues until you learn to control your emotional state, independent of your environment.
 
If you need help understanding or implementing any of the above, drop me a message. 
I love supporting absolute legends to new heights of health, wealth and success.
 
Always in your corner,
Sarah

Chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and arthritis—are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.

Obesity, hypertension, and elevated blood lipids are REDOX mediated issues that respond to foundational lifestyle changes and supplementation of REDOX signaling molecules.

*Cortisol is critical to our survival: without it we die. It is cortisol that regulates the metabolism in each cell; altering blood sugar levels, blood pressure levels and acting as an anti-inflammatory compound.

**When the body is subjected to continual stress, the body is in perpetual 'fight or flight response' causing the adrenals to continue pumping out cortisol until they become exhausted and unable to keep up supply.

‼️Redox imbalance is at the heart of an insufficient ability to handle stress. When too many cells lose electron balance, it results in oxidative stress that makes the body vulnerable to damage and illness.

**Having an appropriate number of redox molecules gives the body the resources it needs to deal with this build up of "leaking electrons" and bring cells back into balance.

Having a pain point doesn't mean other people have to adjust what they say and how they live to appease you.
 
Having a pain point means you learned something a long time ago that probably isn't still serving you, and you're being given an opportunity to address and release it so that you can grow into the fullest expression of who you really are, instead of the costumed collection of coping mechanisms you may be now...
 
Here's an example of a pain point we frequently see on social media..:
 
Someone says something along the lines of 'we create our own reality, we are in control of our emotions, perception is subjective etc etc.'
 
All common sentiments, all factually accurate.
Not all well-received by the masses.. ;)
 
A person who has struggled their whole life may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
A person with low emotional intelligence may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
A person who perceives that their safety exists in something outside of them (e.g. a job) may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
 
Some of these people may react. Some may troll, some may flat out rip you a new one... ;) Some may politely disagree citing 'evidence'.
 
If any of these people are ready to grow, the pain around the statement will cause them to say something to themselves along the lines of 'Why does this bother me? What does it threaten in me to consider this new perspective? How does it protect me to try and defend or justify what I've believed up until now?
And the kicker: 'If what I've believed up until now hasn't landed me the life of my dreams.. what might a new belief like this one bring about instead..?'
 
Someone who isn't ready to grow, will ask something closer to 'who does this unrealistic jackass think she is?!'
 
(Forgetting, ironically, that reality is inherently subjective and jackasses are inherently delightful - I met one at a petting zoo, once.)
 
Where I'm going with this, is that the author of the post does not control where the reader is in their journey, and therefore they cannot control the reception. They can only speak their truth as they know it, trusting that if it is coming through them at this particular time, someone needs to hear it, and the message will get to that person in divine time.
 
If you have been wanting to speak some truth for some time, but you are worried about the trolls, please know this.
 
You are important.
Your message is important.
80yo you would be very disappointed to look back on this opportunity to speak up and know that you allowed yourself to be silenced by a few keyboard warriors, slangin' poorly-spelled insults from their mom's basement.. ;)
 
And the big kahuna:
 
No-one who did anything important was universally liked.
 
There will be trolls.
Say it anyway.
 
Not everyone will understand.
Do what's in your heart anyway.
 
They might not like it.
Try it anyway.
 
They might not like you.
Be you anyway.
 
I love you,
Sarah

I regret to inform you all; I will no longer be practicing naturopathic medicine.

It took some time for me to realize I'm no longer happy in the profession, but I love freelancing and want to make more room for it. Although I have enjoyed making a difference in the lives of my patients, I've felt that it was time for me to make room for better opportunities for personal growth and my career. I was thinking about walking away after the holidays, but since I have been richly busy in other areas of my career, I thought it was time to let naturopathic medicine go now. I wouldn't necessarily say I am quitting naturopathic medicine all together because I'm using my naturopathic knowledge for other areas in my career. I'm making more room to advance and be in the career I want and enjoy!

I currently am taking on freelance health writing opportunities, consulting for nutritional supplement companies and formulating natural products and cosmetics for start-up companies. Keep an eye out for the launch of my new ebook, "A No-Nonsense Writing and Entrepreneurship Guide I Wish Existed Before I Started."

For the past year, I have been formulating hair and skin care, natural, and supplement products for companies or organizations for specific health conditions (alopecia). I've enjoyed freelancing so much I have decided to open my business for this opportunity. I'm signed on to formulate for big companies all over the globe! In addition, my supplement consulting business is booming, and I am a nutrition consultant for a startup company in China. So, I'm making a huge difference in the lives of my clients across the globe, starting with China. I am utilizing most of my time catering to my formulations and writing business while writing helpful blog posts.

Lastly, if you want to quit medicine, please have a support system or utilize counseling services. Quitting medicine, especially if it's something your life used to center on can take a toll on your mental health.

All the successful people I've met have something in common:
 
They took steps to change the old pattern, rather than remaining a prisoner of the pattern.
 
Let me explain.
 
If you are not where you want to be, then whoever you're being and whatever you're doing clearly isn't working. Right? I hope we agree on the bare evidence, at least.
 
So if you don't make massive change to how you operate, it doesn't seem very logical or reasonable that things would change... correct?
 
The difference between people who succeed and people who keep recreating what they know, is that successful people recognize that they can't use their current circumstances as an excuse for not changing, because they created their current circumstances by doing / being / thinking how they've done / been / thought.
 
We are not 'to blame' for everything in our projection, but we are 'at the cause', meaning our reality is constructed in response to us.
 
So let's apply this practically, with a common-place example..:
 
If you aren't making change because you're saying that you 'can't afford it', does it make much sense to you to continue operating the same way, given that those methods made you broke?!
 
I KNOW it's scary to release money.
I KNOW it's scary to consider debt.
I KNOW it's scary to take a leap of faith.
I KNOW it's scary to invest in yourself.
 
I, and everyone else who's done it, KNOW how nerve-wracking it is.
 
But you know what's even more scary?
Staying in the same situation for the next 20yrs.
 
When I hired my first coach (10yrs ago now) I had just moved in with my abusive boyfriend because I couldn't make my mortgage payments. I sold everything I owned and took out a credit card to cover the bill
 
True story: I phoned Tony Robbins Companies from under a dining room table in the foetal position. I couldn't even afford the toll-call, let alone the coach, but what I said to the person who picked up was: 'I don't even really know what a coach does, but you have to help me.'
 
You don't have to get to the point of a breakdown to breakthrough... but if you're going to break down, you may as well break through... ;)
 
That was the start of my re-wiring, and it was worth every penny. I've been travelling the world living my dreams for the last 2.5yrs after I finally packed in my exec career back in 2016, and I've not been without support since. Right now I'm working with 4 different coaches and THEY ARE THE REASON I can afford them.
 
They up level my identity to the person that has what I want.
They call my on my BS.
They don't let me fun fear or victim patterns when I'm moving fast.
They hold my hand when I have to do a scary thing.
They celebrate my wins with me.
They teach me phenomenal strategy.
They illuminate my psychological blindspots.
 
SO.
 
Here's a thought for you to mull over:
We invest in ourselves to the level we believe we deserve.
 
Where have you been discounting your worth up until now? Drop me a comment and let me know all of your feels <3

Salt salt salt... It certainly went through a lot in the history of the world. In ancient times salt was a highly prized commodity with an exchange rate equal to gold. In today's world however, it is one of the cheapest condiments, and one that we certainly overuse. Today's post will dig into one of salt's main components: sodium. 

 

Sodium is an electrolyte absolutely necessary for human survival. Our bodies need it to maintain the right balance of fluids, transmit nerve impulses, and contract and relax muscles.

 

The average American consumes more than twice the recommended amount of 2/3 tsp of sodium per day. In excess that can become toxic. High sodium intake puts us at risk of coronary disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, sleeping issues and excess weight. According to scientists at the University of Delaware, high salt intake may impair the inner lining of blood vessels, increase arterial stiffness, weaken the heart and kidney function, and interfere with sympathetic nervous system. 

 

Food manufacturers use salt for flavor, color, texture, and to extend shelf life. The highest sources of sodium are found in processed and packaged foods such as frozen dinners, pizza, cold cuts and cured meats, sandwiches, crackers, breads, rolls, cookies, chips, soups, sauces as well as in fast foods and restaurant meals. 

 

 

Why too much salt is bad for us? 

 

- causes water retention,

- causes high blood pressure - sodium is one of the key players in regulating blood pressure, 

- can lead to bone loss - too much sodium causes our body to excrete calcium through urine, 

- kidney disease due to high blood pressure which causes damage to small vessels in the kidneys, 

- stomach cancer - salt is believed to increase the growth of Helicobacter pylori (H pylori), a bacteria which is linked to higher risk of stomach cancer, 

- weight gain (it changes the way your body metabolizes fat by increasing insulin production,) 

- it's addictive (research shows that consuming a lot of salt triggers the release of dopamine, the reward hormone),

- eating a lot of salty foods increases cravings,

- increases thirst. 

 

What can we do about all this? 

 

 

Tune in for part 2 (coming next week) on how to reduce sodium intake in your diet.

Yoga Nidra, the concept, is adopted from the ancient science of Tantra. It is a powerful practice for achieving deep relaxation while being conscious and aware. Nidra as a word stands for sleep, but the application here is totally different from what we generally understand sleep as. To understand this we need to log onto some basic insight into the different states of consciousness as explained in the yogic system.

There are three states in which our consciousness keep oscillating at regular intervals, through the agency of mind. These intervals are predetermined most of the times which is referred as the Bio Rhythms.

  1. Jaagrut awastha or normal wakeful state (conscious): This is outer most dimension in which consciousness is in contact with the external material dimension through the agency of sensory organs. We have five sensory organs viz. sight, smell, audition, taste and touch. This is where most of worldly communications takes place. Consciousness exists in an extroverted state relying on sensory organs to relay the information from surroundings.
  2. Swapna awastha or dream state (sub conscious): This is a totally different dimension where consciousness experiences a reality in forms of dreams.
  3. Sushupti awashta or deep sleep (unconscious): State of deep sleep when even dreams don’t appear to the consciousness and an absolute state is experienced which is mostly untraceable by common mind.

While we enter into ordinary sleep, the consciousness drifts from conscious plane to other two without an awareness of this transition. In yoga nidra, we train our mind to retain the awareness not just of this transition but of the actual experience it receives while being in each state.

During the practice, consciousness moves to a threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, thereby connecting with the sub conscious and unconscious dimensions.

This awareness is the actual scientific definition of relaxation which is in contrast to popular beliefs. As we generally observe by relaxation we often mean lying on a couch, having a cup of coffee or a drink or reading our favorite author or genre. All these are simply sensory diversions that change the direction in which our sense organs are engaged. They have very less to do with actual relaxation that occurs only when we are aware and unattached; in this reference it’s better to say un-indulged.

The matrix of Tension

Action, in general, leads to tension. This is natural physics. Two forces operating simultaneously at the same time will create tension. As we go through doing small and big things in life with body, mind or heart, we produce tension. And that tension operates on us. Whatever we do as part of routine, from eating to sleeping, to walking to running to catching a train to managing projects at work, each activity results in tension. These tensions are stored at several planes of our personality.

These accumulated tensions manifest in several form via our psyche. Imbalances, disorders and conflicts within an individual or societies or nations.

Yoga straightforwardly identifies these tensions at the source of suffering.  We are not aware of them directly and only see their symptoms. This condition is known as Klesha in Yoga and they are the root of all human problems. Avidya or ignorance is where they all are rooted. This ignorance is the realm of our personalities about which we are not really aware of.

We can categorize three basic types of tension:

  1. Muscular
  2. Emotional
  3. Mental

Yoga Nidra is an effective method of achieving physical, emotional and mental rest and release. It’s a systematic tool of transiting between different states of consciousness. This has got powerful and profound impacts on the overall personality. We are able to let go of stored tensions, burn sanskaras or to say break older habitual conditioning in order to have a fresh and conscious experience overall. It also increases the receptivity of mind and thus enhances learning and gaining knowledge.

Creativity and Sankalp

Also it allows for a creative expression of our mind as it get free from fears, phobias and several neurosis. This helps in concentrating the energy of mind and giving it a channeled expression. Opting for a resolution or Sankalp, during the practise provides for that channeling of the energy. This Sankalp is a very positive and virtuous idea that you might be aspired towards having as a part of you. It is chosen and repeated constantly each time you practise until it is realized.

Psychological Correlates

Our brain emits different types of wave patterns while we drift from one state of mind to the other. Mapping these waves through specific instruments has been a milestone in the studies conducted in several places. This has made more and more scientific brains interested and attracted towards exploring and researching the probable implications of Yoga Nidra as a tool to overcome several issues that modern civilization is struggling with.

The table below shows a scientific explanatory values for the states of consciousness and the values for brain waves emitted in each of these states. Also mentioned is the correlated field of experiencing with each state.

Awakening of instincts and primitive drives

The popular format of Yoga Nidra was designed by Shri Swami Satyananda Saraswti, the founder of one of the most authentic and popular institution of yoga study in our times called Bihar School of Yoga. He was a realized yogi who reformed many concepts and principles of yoga so as to be understood by the modern mind easily.

For more information on the technique and practice of yoga nidra, we will soon publish another post with further details.

Free Radicals are atoms in our body that are chemically unstable having an unpaired electron making them highly reactive. Typically they are unstable oxygen molecules that steal an electron from a nearby stable molecule.

This process of stealing is called “Oxidation”.

Normally, the body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur. Of particular importance is that free radical damage accumulates with age.

What if you could increase the efficiency of some of our body’s most important native antioxidants inside living cells – such as glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) — more than 500%?

We live and die at the cellular level. Our bodies are programmed for health; programmed to protect, repair, and replace our cells. But our bodies' ability to do that diminishes over time. We have a word for that: Aging.

The key to protecting, repairing, and replacing cells is a specialized set of molecules: Redox Signaling molecules. Your own body makes them, every minute of every day. But as we get older, our bodies get less efficient at the process. In fact, while very young children operate at nearly 100% efficiency in what scientists call “the healing response,” a 70 year-old is operating at only 10% efficiency.

That’s aging, right there. Reduction in efficiency in the healing response.

The answer? The world’s only Redox Signaling supplement - want to learn more? Send me a message - this is truly a breakthrough in science!

(This is the second of two articles reporting on the 2017 Annie Appleseed cancer conference in West Palm Beach, Florida)

Dr. Michael Schachter, M.D., of New York, was the keynote speaker at this year’s Annie Appleseed cancer conference. He’s one of America’s most outstanding cancer doctors.

Dr. Schachter expressed concern that integrative cancer doctors – those who combine alternatives with mainstream medicine – too often accept chemo and radiation as a “given” and use alternative treatments only to supplement the conventional treatments.

Dr. Schachter believes it makes more sense to use non-toxic methods first and only use conventional treatments if necessary as a last resort.

He remarked, “Might patients do even better by not doing the conventional therapy at all in some cases? That’s the question that’s not being asked! Rarely is it asked whether adding conventional treatment might interfere with the alternative treatment.”

Continued below. . .

German tycoon quits business
opens new kind of cancer center,
and stuns doctors with “impossible” cures…

As a last resort, 67 so-called “terminally ill” stage four cancer patients went to the tycoon’s new cancer center: over half of them whipped their cancer!

A baffled radiologist told the tycoon, “I don’t understand why the PET scans of your cancer patients look different.”

Perplexed doctors are scratching their heads.

How did this retired German businessman cure many of the “terminal” stage four cancer patients they’d sent home to die?

Click here to find out the full story on the tycoon’s cancer center, and how you can get the same treatment for yourself.

Avoid excessive blasts of radiation!

Dr. Schachter cautioned against PET and CT scans. He said a CT scan blasts the patient with 100 times the radiation of a single chest X-ray. Even worse is a PET scan, which nukes the patient with 500 times the radiation of a chest X-ray! Yet cancer doctors routinely order these tests, even though it’s a well-established fact that radiation is one of the causes of cancer.

What’s more, a tumor isn’t as dangerous to the patient as the cancer stem cells, which only occupy one percent of the tumor. It’s the cancer stem cells that metastasize. Dr. Schachter recommended the two plant extracts that another speaker, Sylvie Beljanski, had featured in her talk: Pao pereira, a tree native to the Amazon rain forest, and Rauwolfia vomitoria, an African plant now grown in other parts of the world. More on these later in this article.

While the cancer treatment industry claims to be making progress, Dr. Schachter pointed out that cancer death rates haven’t changed since the 1950s. He criticized conventional treatments for aiming to kill cancer cells with little concern for the bad effects on normal cells.

Indeed, what good does it do to poison the cancer if the treatment also poisons the patient? It’s common for cancer patients to die from the conventional treatments rather than from the cancer itself.

Some cancer patients are so desperate they leap at the chance to participate in a clinical trial. But Dr. Schachter frowns on clinical trials because no patient can be accepted into a clinical trial without first undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, which compromise or destroy the immune system.

In Dr. Schachter’s opinion, the clinicians are more interested in the trial than in the patient. Another disadvantage of trials is that the patients have only a 50-50 chance of getting the drug that’s being tested: half of the patients receive a placebo (a blank pill, also known as a “sugar pill”). Dr. Schachter rarely sees patients benefit from clinical trials.

Magnetic therapy: “a potential game changer”

Dr. Schachter mentioned that he’s impressed with the effect of Bemer therapy on cancer patients. The Bemer device, which is used in nearly all of the alternative cancer clinics in Germany that I’ve visited, is a mat that gives the patient optimal PEMF (pulsed electro-magnetic frequencies).

Dr. Schachter said, “The Bemer is a potential game changer. It causes an increase of about 30 percent in micro-circulation all over the body. This increases oxygen and helps get rid of the waste. Bemer therapy takes only eight minutes, twice a day. It’s easy. You lie on this mat. You feel relaxation or a slight warmth.”

One of Germany’s top doctors, Frank Daudert, M.D., told me the Bemer also boosts the immune system and increases natural killer cells by 20 to 25 percent. Many cancer patients buy a Bemer for home use. (For info about the Bemer, contact Anne Bernard, naturopath: anne@vieharmony.com.)

Has cancer research accomplished anything?

President Richard Nixon famously declared war on cancer in 1971. Since that time, the government has spent 1.6 billion dollars on cancer research in quest of a cure. What are the results of this research?

Dr. Schachter drew the audience’s attention to an article, “Cancer Undefeated,” by a distinguished physician, John C. Bailar, M.D. In that article, which appeared in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine (May 29, 1997, 336:1569-1574), Dr. Bailar expressed deep skepticism that “marvelous new treatments for cancer are just waiting to be discovered.”

He pointed out the obvious failure of cancer researchers. In response, the cancer research industry attacked Dr. Bailar mercilessly.

Even today, 20 years later, the cancer research industry appears to be an abysmal failure.

In contrast to this failure, Dr. Schachter has had considerable success using natural treatments. Because anti-inflammatories inhibit cancer stem cell growth, he recommends such substances as curcumin, black cumin seeds, cruciferous vegetables, vitamin D, boswellia, and aloe vera extract. In addition, he tests each cancer patient for iodine — and typically finds a deficiency.

Dr. Schachter has found in his practice that the patient’s body has the ability to heal itself, given the right conditions. He said cancer patients should avoid or reduce toxic substances and toxic energies and supply what the body needs: oxygen, water, food, nutrition, and sunlight.

The orthodontist who became a cancer guru

Dr. Linda Isaacs, M.D., a colleague of the late legendary Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D., told the Annie Appleseed audience the story of an orthodontist, Dr. William Donald Kelley (1925-2005).

Dr. Kelley, one of the most famous figures in alternative cancer treatment, cured his own “incurable” pancreatic cancer. He had become little more than skin and bones, except for the gigantic tumor sticking out of his abdomen. But he had young children and strong reasons to live, so he tried something radical: he went raw vegetarian.

Although this eating plan stabilized his disease, he still experienced major digestive problems. A pharmacist advised him to take pancreatic enzymes, and this remedy was a breakthrough in his course of treatment. His tumor, which had been rock hard, became soft and squishy as it shrank and disintegrated.

Dr. Isaacs pointed out that, for more than a century, patients have employed the pancreatic enzyme cure for cancer. In 1911, Dr. James Beard, who has been called the most boring person who ever lived, wrote the book The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and its Scientific Basis.

Around the same time, a more exciting scientist, Madame Marie Curie, dazzled the world with a cancer treatment that had more sizzle: radiation! The rest, as they say, is history. It’s too bad the medical world ignored Dr. Beard and embraced radiation as a standard cancer treatment. Ironically, Madame Curie died of radiation poisoning.

The orthodontist’s cancer cure

Following Dr. Kelley’s pancreatic enzyme cure, patients started to come to him not to have their teeth straightened out but to have their cancer straightened out. He wrote a self-help book entitled One Answer to Cancer, which caused consternation in the medical community.

One of the people who sought help from Dr. Kelley for his “incurable” cancer was movie star Steve McQueen, who had gone through chemo and radiation without success. McQueen had one of the nastiest cancers, mesothelioma, but was actually reversing it with natural medicine and might well have survived. He died on the operating table during an elective procedure.

Around 1983, Dr. Kelley met Dr. Gonzalez, who embraced his methods and achieved extraordinary success for patients suffering from tough, deadly cancers.

In 1993 Dr. Gonzalez presented 25 cases of enzyme-based cancer therapy to the National Cancer Institute and insisted that they consider his powerful, incontrovertible evidence. The one-year survival rate for Dr. Gonzalez’s terminal patients was 81 percent compared to 25 percent for patients who underwent conventional treatment. The two-year survival rate was 45 percent for Dr. Gonzalez’s enzyme therapy patients compared to 10 percent for patients in conventional treatment.

The cancer establishment pulled out all the stops to discredit Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gonzalez, but these two doctors produced impressive evidence that enzyme therapy beats conventional cancer treatment hands down.

Dr. Isaacs finished her talk by telling stories of remarkable cancer recoveries.

  • In December of 2000 a lady’s PET scan showed a pancreatic mass, which a biopsy later found to be a deadly cancer. She refused surgery and was declined for a clinical trial because she was eligible for surgery. She started the enzyme protocol in April of 2001 and took no chemo or radiation. As of December, 2016 she was alive and well.
  • In August of 2008 a woman had a football-sized mass in her back and two large tumors in her thorax. She was treated with aggressive chemo, without success. Doctors told her she was terminal. In February of 2009 she began enzyme therapy with Dr. Gonzalez. By the following March she was clear, and she’s still alive and well.
  • In October of 1995 a man with non-Hodgkin lymphoma refused all conventional treatment and started the enzyme protocol instead. A CT scan in May of 2001 showed complete regression. As of September, 2016 he was alive and well at the age of 60 and was building a retaining wall in his backyard.

One wonders how the cancer treatment industry can continue to ignore the powerful evidence that natural medicine beats chemo and radiation hands down.

Cancer survivors tell their personal stories

One of the most popular features of the Annie Appleseed conference is the Patient Panel, in which cancer patients describe their own experiences. One of the speakers this year was Annie Brandt, the author of The Healing Platform: Build Your Own Cure! She’s a 15-year survivor of end-stage metastatic breast cancer, and her story is amazing.

In 1992 Annie Brandt was a computer executive working 80 hours a week. She burned herself out and was diagnosed with immune dysfunction syndrome. Her response? “OK, where’s my pill?” She had assumed the doctor would write a prescription for a medication that would solve the problem.

But she found that her co-pay of $600 a month in pills was a waste. The pills weren’t working. She was in bed 21 hours a day, when she realized that the doctors couldn’t fix her but that she might be able to do something to fix herself.

Applying the principles of mind-body medicine gave her significant improvement, but one day she fell down vomiting and dizzy. She was diagnosed with M.S. and I.B.S. Doctors told her she would be in a wheelchair within six months and dead in a couple of years.

Annie was planning suicide when she heard a voice telling her, “Don’t worry. I’m not going to let anything bad happen to you.” She knew it was no human voice but could only have been the voice of God.

A double mastectomy? Not so fast!

She continued to struggle, and in 2001 she fell victim to another health setback — breast cancer. The doctor told her, “We’ve booked you for a double mastectomy on Tuesday, after which you’ll have chemo and radiation. Have a good weekend!”

She threw a gigantic pity party, as she described it, and was once again at the point of despair. Again, she heard the voice, “Don’t worry. I’m not going to let anything bad happen to you.”

That voice gave her the courage to get busy with research. When she found that chemo weakens the immune system, distorts the DNA of healthy cells, and promotes metastasis, she thought to herself, “Why would I want to do that?! If I’m going to die, I want to go with as much dignity and quality and grace as possible, and I want to go with the ‘girls.'”

She promptly cancelled the double mastectomy, even though the doctors tried to scare her by telling her she only had “three to six months to live.”

Annie beat her cancer by changing her attitude, getting rid of her “stinkin’ thinkin’,” praying, managing stress, and eating healthy food. She has found that there’s not just one anti-cancer eating plan but several, and she likes to “switch things around so that cancer doesn’t see me coming.”

“Let’s cut out your colon”

The other panelist was Chris Pedersen, who was referred for genetic testing in September of 2008 because a lot of polyps were found during her colonoscopy. A doctor told her, “You have a defective gene, which will give you a 99 percent chance of getting colon cancer, so let’s cut out your colon.” She thought, “What? Say that again. No. That’s barbaric!”

She had more colonoscopies, which found 15 more polyps; all of them were virulent. Her husband brought home some thick books, one of which was about nature’s cancer-fighting cures. She devoured the book and radically changed her lifestyle, especially her eating plan. She disengaged from sugar, to which she’d become addicted, and upped her intake of vegetables.

One year after starting her nutritional program she had a clean colonoscopy! Following this remarkable result, the doctor took her aside and said, “You know, you wouldn’t have to be going through this if you had your colon removed.” She looked at him as if he had two heads and thought to herself, “WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU!!! DON’T YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I DID?” Apparently, he had no interest in how she’d achieved her health turnaround.

Chris is convinced that you can heal the body by nourishing it. She mentioned some of the nutritional supplements she found to be effective: laetrile, digestive enzymes, lysine, turmeric in a capsule, vitamin C, Vitæ Elixxir herbal extract, and beta glucan.

Medicinal mushrooms are rich
in immune-boosting beta glucan

Dr. Mark Kaylor, Ph.D., spoke about the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms. One fact about these mushrooms is that they contain immune-boosting beta glucan. In fact, Dr. Kaylor gave everyone in the audience a bottle of meshima mushroom extract because of its powerful immune-boosting and anti-tumor action.

This mushroom extract activates the immune system’s macrophages, which are like “PacMan,” gobbling up the bad things the body needs to get rid of. The mushroom also suppresses angiogenesis, the formation of a blood supply to the tumor. Without a blood supply, the tumor starves to death and disintegrates.

Another powerful anti-cancer mushroom is the maitake, which is not only edible but also delicious. Maitake contains a unique beta glucan that’s especially beneficial for breast cancer patients. For patients who choose to undergo chemo, maitake helps lessen the side effects. It also lowers blood sugar and helps improve insulin sensitivity.

Most cancer patients are overstressed, which weakens the immune system. Dr. Kaylor called the reishi mushroom “a champion at lowering stress.” Reishi boasts many health benefits. It helps improve sleep quality, strengthens the internal organs, improves memory, lowers blood pressure, and balances the nervous system. It’s also anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, and anti-tumor.

Dr. Kaylor asserted that reishi is also “safe for kids. There’s no need for ADHD drugs.” He called it “the tonic for the 21st century” and believes just about everyone should take it.

Cordyceps is another mushroom Dr. Kaylor strongly believes in. Because of its circulatory benefits, he declared, “Everybody over 50 should be on it.”

For those who are interested in taking high quality medicinal mushroom extracts, some of the top brands are Mushroom Wisdom, Fungi Perfecti, and Mushroom Science.

Conventional doctors ignore cancer stem cells!

Sylvie Beljanski, the daughter of the late French-Serbian molecular biologist Mirko Beljanski, gave a talk about plant extracts that kill stem cells. Her late father worked for 40 years at the Pasteur Institute in Paris researching natural cancer remedies. He discovered two plants in particular that kill cancer with remarkable effectiveness.

These plants — Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria — even kill cancer stem cells, the culprit in cancer metastasis. Cancer stem cells hide from scans: only one percent of cancer cells are cancer stem cells.

Conventional cancer doctors ignore the stem cells, focus on the other cells (the tumor mass), and give their patients a false sense of security when, after surgery and chemo, they declare, “We got it all.” No, they didn’t “get it all.”

Chemotherapy is generally ineffective against cancer stem cells. This is the main reason why cancer so often returns after patients appear to be cancer free. And that’s why Mirko Beljanski’s ground-breaking discoveries are so important. Today, Dr. Beljanski’s daughter Sylvie is the Vice President of the Beljanski Foundation, which is dedicated to promoting his discoveries.

An eating plan for gut health

One of Mexico’s finest cancer doctors, Dr. Rodrigo Rodriguez of Tijuana, gave a talk on how to improve your gut health through a good eating plan. He pointed out that there are an astounding 300 billion cells in the intestinal flora (friendly digestive microbes) and that these cells perform “a ton of functions that are fundamental to our life.” When gut health is out of balance, people become inflamed, sick, weak, and tired.

Dr. Rodriguez suggested that people eat one more vegetable a day and devote one meal — lunch — to intestinal health. For lunch, he recommended a rich salad with such ingredients as legumes, radishes, and sweet potatoes.

Incidentally, Dr. Rodriguez’s hospital, International BioCare, is one of the finest cancer hospitals in the world. It’s quite popular with the Amish, who prefer natural medicine to high tech conventional treatments.

I want to take a moment to address this because it's a super common misconception that you can talk yourself into a different reality without engaging your emotional state.
 
Affirmations, visualizations, journal prompts, Kylego etc are tools, designed to get you to feel the emotions you would feel if your goal was already achieved.
Simply saying the affirmation or picturing the goal isn't going to cause a manifestation if you're not prepared to change how you're thinking and feeling. 
What we know from quantum physics is that atoms respond to our vibration, and our vibration comes down to our emotional state.
 
Newtonian (matrix level) is 'cause and effect', 
Quantum (the building blocks of reality) is 'effect triggers cause', meaning that you need to create the effect of your goal having been achieved (e.g. feeling proud, successful, secure, important, safe, calm, excited etc) in order to issue the correct blue-print. 
 
Someone who is excited will create a world full of things to excite them, because the atoms build a reality that supports and reinforces who you ARE, not what you want.
Someone who is constantly frustrated will generate a world full of things that frustrate them.
 
In addition, whatever you focus on, your brain assumes is important and relevant, and prioritizes it. So if you're focussed on problems, your brain deliberately seeks them out and prioritizes them for extra attention. Then, as you pour more fuel into them rather than elevating past them, they get bigger. And the cycle continues until you learn to control your emotional state, independent of your environment.
 
If you need help understanding or implementing any of the above, drop me a message. 
I love supporting absolute legends to new heights of health, wealth and success.
 
Always in your corner,
Sarah

*Cortisol is critical to our survival: without it we die. It is cortisol that regulates the metabolism in each cell; altering blood sugar levels, blood pressure levels and acting as an anti-inflammatory compound.

**When the body is subjected to continual stress, the body is in perpetual 'fight or flight response' causing the adrenals to continue pumping out cortisol until they become exhausted and unable to keep up supply.

‼️Redox imbalance is at the heart of an insufficient ability to handle stress. When too many cells lose electron balance, it results in oxidative stress that makes the body vulnerable to damage and illness.

**Having an appropriate number of redox molecules gives the body the resources it needs to deal with this build up of "leaking electrons" and bring cells back into balance.

Having a pain point doesn't mean other people have to adjust what they say and how they live to appease you.
 
Having a pain point means you learned something a long time ago that probably isn't still serving you, and you're being given an opportunity to address and release it so that you can grow into the fullest expression of who you really are, instead of the costumed collection of coping mechanisms you may be now...
 
Here's an example of a pain point we frequently see on social media..:
 
Someone says something along the lines of 'we create our own reality, we are in control of our emotions, perception is subjective etc etc.'
 
All common sentiments, all factually accurate.
Not all well-received by the masses.. ;)
 
A person who has struggled their whole life may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
A person with low emotional intelligence may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
A person who perceives that their safety exists in something outside of them (e.g. a job) may experience psychological pain (cognitive dissonance) upon reading the above sentiments.
 
Some of these people may react. Some may troll, some may flat out rip you a new one... ;) Some may politely disagree citing 'evidence'.
 
If any of these people are ready to grow, the pain around the statement will cause them to say something to themselves along the lines of 'Why does this bother me? What does it threaten in me to consider this new perspective? How does it protect me to try and defend or justify what I've believed up until now?
And the kicker: 'If what I've believed up until now hasn't landed me the life of my dreams.. what might a new belief like this one bring about instead..?'
 
Someone who isn't ready to grow, will ask something closer to 'who does this unrealistic jackass think she is?!'
 
(Forgetting, ironically, that reality is inherently subjective and jackasses are inherently delightful - I met one at a petting zoo, once.)
 
Where I'm going with this, is that the author of the post does not control where the reader is in their journey, and therefore they cannot control the reception. They can only speak their truth as they know it, trusting that if it is coming through them at this particular time, someone needs to hear it, and the message will get to that person in divine time.
 
If you have been wanting to speak some truth for some time, but you are worried about the trolls, please know this.
 
You are important.
Your message is important.
80yo you would be very disappointed to look back on this opportunity to speak up and know that you allowed yourself to be silenced by a few keyboard warriors, slangin' poorly-spelled insults from their mom's basement.. ;)
 
And the big kahuna:
 
No-one who did anything important was universally liked.
 
There will be trolls.
Say it anyway.
 
Not everyone will understand.
Do what's in your heart anyway.
 
They might not like it.
Try it anyway.
 
They might not like you.
Be you anyway.
 
I love you,
Sarah

I regret to inform you all; I will no longer be practicing naturopathic medicine.

It took some time for me to realize I'm no longer happy in the profession, but I love freelancing and want to make more room for it. Although I have enjoyed making a difference in the lives of my patients, I've felt that it was time for me to make room for better opportunities for personal growth and my career. I was thinking about walking away after the holidays, but since I have been richly busy in other areas of my career, I thought it was time to let naturopathic medicine go now. I wouldn't necessarily say I am quitting naturopathic medicine all together because I'm using my naturopathic knowledge for other areas in my career. I'm making more room to advance and be in the career I want and enjoy!

I currently am taking on freelance health writing opportunities, consulting for nutritional supplement companies and formulating natural products and cosmetics for start-up companies. Keep an eye out for the launch of my new ebook, "A No-Nonsense Writing and Entrepreneurship Guide I Wish Existed Before I Started."

For the past year, I have been formulating hair and skin care, natural, and supplement products for companies or organizations for specific health conditions (alopecia). I've enjoyed freelancing so much I have decided to open my business for this opportunity. I'm signed on to formulate for big companies all over the globe! In addition, my supplement consulting business is booming, and I am a nutrition consultant for a startup company in China. So, I'm making a huge difference in the lives of my clients across the globe, starting with China. I am utilizing most of my time catering to my formulations and writing business while writing helpful blog posts.

Lastly, if you want to quit medicine, please have a support system or utilize counseling services. Quitting medicine, especially if it's something your life used to center on can take a toll on your mental health.

Thank you all for your reading and your support in my journey.

All the successful people I've met have something in common:
 
They took steps to change the old pattern, rather than remaining a prisoner of the pattern.
 
Let me explain.
 
If you are not where you want to be, then whoever you're being and whatever you're doing clearly isn't working. Right? I hope we agree on the bare evidence, at least.
 
So if you don't make massive change to how you operate, it doesn't seem very logical or reasonable that things would change... correct?
 
The difference between people who succeed and people who keep recreating what they know, is that successful people recognize that they can't use their current circumstances as an excuse for not changing, because they created their current circumstances by doing / being / thinking how they've done / been / thought.
 
We are not 'to blame' for everything in our projection, but we are 'at the cause', meaning our reality is constructed in response to us.
 
So let's apply this practically, with a common-place example..:
 
If you aren't making change because you're saying that you 'can't afford it', does it make much sense to you to continue operating the same way, given that those methods made you broke?!
 
I KNOW it's scary to release money.
I KNOW it's scary to consider debt.
I KNOW it's scary to take a leap of faith.
I KNOW it's scary to invest in yourself.
 
I, and everyone else who's done it, KNOW how nerve-wracking it is.
 
But you know what's even more scary?
Staying in the same situation for the next 20yrs.
 
When I hired my first coach (10yrs ago now) I had just moved in with my abusive boyfriend because I couldn't make my mortgage payments. I sold everything I owned and took out a credit card to cover the bill
 
True story: I phoned Tony Robbins Companies from under a dining room table in the foetal position. I couldn't even afford the toll-call, let alone the coach, but what I said to the person who picked up was: 'I don't even really know what a coach does, but you have to help me.'
 
You don't have to get to the point of a breakdown to breakthrough... but if you're going to break down, you may as well break through... ;)
 
That was the start of my re-wiring, and it was worth every penny. I've been travelling the world living my dreams for the last 2.5yrs after I finally packed in my exec career back in 2016, and I've not been without support since. Right now I'm working with 4 different coaches and THEY ARE THE REASON I can afford them.
 
They up level my identity to the person that has what I want.
They call my on my BS.
They don't let me fun fear or victim patterns when I'm moving fast.
They hold my hand when I have to do a scary thing.
They celebrate my wins with me.
They teach me phenomenal strategy.
They illuminate my psychological blindspots.
 
SO.
 
Here's a thought for you to mull over:
We invest in ourselves to the level we believe we deserve.
 
Where have you been discounting your worth up until now? Drop me a comment and let me know all of your feels <3

Salt salt salt... It certainly went through a lot in the history of the world. In ancient times salt was a highly prized commodity with an exchange rate equal to gold. In today's world however, it is one of the cheapest condiments, and one that we certainly overuse. Today's post will dig into one of salt's main components: sodium. 

 

Sodium is an electrolyte absolutely necessary for human survival. Our bodies need it to maintain the right balance of fluids, transmit nerve impulses, and contract and relax muscles.

 

The average American consumes more than twice the recommended amount of 2/3 tsp of sodium per day. In excess that can become toxic. High sodium intake puts us at risk of coronary disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, sleeping issues and excess weight. According to scientists at the University of Delaware, high salt intake may impair the inner lining of blood vessels, increase arterial stiffness, weaken the heart and kidney function, and interfere with sympathetic nervous system. 

 

Food manufacturers use salt for flavor, color, texture, and to extend shelf life. The highest sources of sodium are found in processed and packaged foods such as frozen dinners, pizza, cold cuts and cured meats, sandwiches, crackers, breads, rolls, cookies, chips, soups, sauces as well as in fast foods and restaurant meals. 

 

 

Why too much salt is bad for us? 

 

- causes water retention,

- causes high blood pressure - sodium is one of the key players in regulating blood pressure, 

- can lead to bone loss - too much sodium causes our body to excrete calcium through urine, 

- kidney disease due to high blood pressure which causes damage to small vessels in the kidneys, 

- stomach cancer - salt is believed to increase the growth of Helicobacter pylori (H pylori), a bacteria which is linked to higher risk of stomach cancer, 

- weight gain (it changes the way your body metabolizes fat by increasing insulin production,) 

- it's addictive (research shows that consuming a lot of salt triggers the release of dopamine, the reward hormone),

- eating a lot of salty foods increases cravings,

- increases thirst. 

 

What can we do about all this? 

 

 

Tune in for part 2 (coming next week) on how to reduce sodium intake in your diet.

Yoga Nidra, the concept, is adopted from the ancient science of Tantra. It is a powerful practice for achieving deep relaxation while being conscious and aware. Nidra as a word stands for sleep, but the application here is totally different from what we generally understand sleep as. To understand this we need to log onto some basic insight into the different states of consciousness as explained in the yogic system.

There are three states in which our consciousness keep oscillating at regular intervals, through the agency of mind. These intervals are predetermined most of the times which is referred as the Bio Rhythms.

  1. Jaagrut awastha or normal wakeful state (conscious): This is outer most dimension in which consciousness is in contact with the external material dimension through the agency of sensory organs. We have five sensory organs viz. sight, smell, audition, taste and touch. This is where most of worldly communications takes place. Consciousness exists in an extroverted state relying on sensory organs to relay the information from surroundings.
  2. Swapna awastha or dream state (sub conscious): This is a totally different dimension where consciousness experiences a reality in forms of dreams.
  3. Sushupti awashta or deep sleep (unconscious): State of deep sleep when even dreams don’t appear to the consciousness and an absolute state is experienced which is mostly untraceable by common mind.

While we enter into ordinary sleep, the consciousness drifts from conscious plane to other two without an awareness of this transition. In yoga nidra, we train our mind to retain the awareness not just of this transition but of the actual experience it receives while being in each state.

During the practice, consciousness moves to a threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, thereby connecting with the sub conscious and unconscious dimensions.

This awareness is the actual scientific definition of relaxation which is in contrast to popular beliefs. As we generally observe by relaxation we often mean lying on a couch, having a cup of coffee or a drink or reading our favorite author or genre. All these are simply sensory diversions that change the direction in which our sense organs are engaged. They have very less to do with actual relaxation that occurs only when we are aware and unattached; in this reference it’s better to say un-indulged.

The matrix of Tension

Action, in general, leads to tension. This is natural physics. Two forces operating simultaneously at the same time will create tension. As we go through doing small and big things in life with body, mind or heart, we produce tension. And that tension operates on us. Whatever we do as part of routine, from eating to sleeping, to walking to running to catching a train to managing projects at work, each activity results in tension. These tensions are stored at several planes of our personality.

These accumulated tensions manifest in several form via our psyche. Imbalances, disorders and conflicts within an individual or societies or nations.

Yoga straightforwardly identifies these tensions at the source of suffering.  We are not aware of them directly and only see their symptoms. This condition is known as Klesha in Yoga and they are the root of all human problems. Avidya or ignorance is where they all are rooted. This ignorance is the realm of our personalities about which we are not really aware of.

We can categorize three basic types of tension:

  1. Muscular
  2. Emotional
  3. Mental

Yoga Nidra is an effective method of achieving physical, emotional and mental rest and release. It’s a systematic tool of transiting between different states of consciousness. This has got powerful and profound impacts on the overall personality. We are able to let go of stored tensions, burn sanskaras or to say break older habitual conditioning in order to have a fresh and conscious experience overall. It also increases the receptivity of mind and thus enhances learning and gaining knowledge.

Creativity and Sankalp

Also it allows for a creative expression of our mind as it get free from fears, phobias and several neurosis. This helps in concentrating the energy of mind and giving it a channeled expression. Opting for a resolution or Sankalp, during the practise provides for that channeling of the energy. This Sankalp is a very positive and virtuous idea that you might be aspired towards having as a part of you. It is chosen and repeated constantly each time you practise until it is realized.

Psychological Correlates

Our brain emits different types of wave patterns while we drift from one state of mind to the other. Mapping these waves through specific instruments has been a milestone in the studies conducted in several places. This has made more and more scientific brains interested and attracted towards exploring and researching the probable implications of Yoga Nidra as a tool to overcome several issues that modern civilization is struggling with.

The table below shows a scientific explanatory values for the states of consciousness and the values for brain waves emitted in each of these states. Also mentioned is the correlated field of experiencing with each state.

No. State of consciousness Psychological name Brainwave pattern Experience
1 Awake Conscious mind Beta

 

(13-20 cps)

Sensory awareness, external knowledge
2 Yoga Nidra Border line between awake and sleep Alpha

 

(8-12 cps)

Deep relaxation, conscious dreaming
3 Dreaming sleeping Subconscious mind Theta

 

(4 – 7 cps)

Release of emotions, fears and desires
4 Deep sleep Unconscious mind Delta

 

(0-4 cps)

Awakening of instincts and primitive drives

The popular format of Yoga Nidra was designed by Shri Swami Satyananda Saraswti, the founder of one of the most authentic and popular institution of yoga study in our times called Bihar School of Yoga. He was a realized yogi who reformed many concepts and principles of yoga so as to be understood by the modern mind easily.

For more information on the technique and practice of yoga nidra, we will soon publish another post with further details.
